No fuss , no frills so simple.

Hi there chums , hope life is good for you and yours.

Welcome to my room and thank you for calling in . I see new follower ,Donna, and I hope that I can visit her soon .

Had a fabulous afternoon with Jane and Sandy . You know I don't remember having  as  much fun when I was younger . Must be something in the water /tea / coffee here . right girls??

Tonight I jumped right in to kit making . The first thing on the to do list was to grab a hand full of papers 12x12 from my huge stash and some scraps of coordinating card . I am still wading through my stash  . I had already researched my saved card photos and had in mind a card I wanted to make .

My card
Card base , Early Espresso , SU.   Paper from  Craft Concepts. 
Sentiment from SU .
The inside has same paper and larger die cut circle for greeting .

I am using this sample , below ,  as inspiration for  my   masculine card , no fuss no frills and simple to make .

Thank you MFT

I was inspired by the odd shaped back ground paper layer and the CAS style .

Now off to look for some challenges to enter ..

                   Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
